Christin McDowell's Protein Pancakes

"This is so simple and a great weight to shed some fat!" -Christin McDowell
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1-2 whole eggs
  • 3.5 scoops of vanilla protein powder
  •  1 tsp of cinnamon
  • Pinch of rock or lava salt
  • 4-5 drops of stevia, if you like the extra sweetness
Taste: Pretty good. The biggest major difference than normal pancakes is the consistency. Great submission!

Filling: Fills you up. I used 2 eggs/ 2 egg whites and yielded three full size pancakes.

Health: Very good as a replacement for a flour/sugar rich recipe. Berries or fruit would add nutrients and/or antioxidants.

Cost: Cheap! The only thing that cost more than a few cents is the protein powder, of which many people already have at home.

Recipe: Blend ingredients til smooth, like the consistency of pancake batter. Variations can include adding in chopped banana and fresh blueberries for pancakes, a perfect post workout breakfast! You could also try adding cocoa powder for the waffles for a chocolate waffle, great with a reduction of sliced strawberries, little lemon and stevia! Editor's note: Cook the pancakes more like you fry an egg-over-easy/medium. They cook much faster than normal flour pancakes and they will have a dry texture if you over cook. I cooked the Christin's recipe with frozen blueberries which I added just prior to cooking and the blueberries worked very well with the recipe. I came out with a pretty runny batter prior to frying (Used 2 eggs, 2 egg whites) so I added 2 Tbs of flour and it made it hold together better.

Time: Approximately 10-15 minutes.
